Yea, thanks for running the 32 with us last night.  Now I have all 3 characters at 33.  Also pulled the new Ram and Stone Face exotics from 6 helmet engrams so it feels good to finally get one of the new exotics.

The only new exotic armor I really want is the Ram so I am frustrated as shit because pretty much everyone I know got one or more from the engrams and I didn't of course. I got the stone man or whatever for titans that I will never use though and multiple apothosis veil's which is literally my least favorite helmet in the game.... ugh

 

I tried matchmaking for the Heroic at 32 as well and I am pretty much never doing that again. I kept getting people who would quit and then at the end when I finally beat it (which was WAY LONGER than usual) the people kind of sucked and kept pulling stupid crap. Ugh.

Broly, I thought the same thing about matchmaking on the weekly heroic when they first introduced that feature a few months ago.  The first couple weeks I got paired with some terrible and immature people who either a) didn't know what they were doing and quit on me or b) people who sent me hate mail for some perceived slight.  After the first couple weeks though, I think those "casual" players lost interest and we were left with a better pool.  I expect this will go the same way.

But anyway...thanks for slinking out of the doghouse last night to run PoE with Drunkz and me.  I appreciate you guys helping me get a character to level 33.

Oh yeah, no problem. That was fun - that is the sort of stuff I play this game for. Plus it made me feel a little more competent that I was able to do that pretty easily. Later I was just casually finishing up the story on my third character with a couple of people from my old Raid team and just BSing the whole time. That sort of stuff will always be fun even if I don't get the shiny new toys.

I actually want the Stone Face helmet (as well as the Hunter one). But I don't know how many more shards/motes I want to blow through. I also bought the Starfire Protocol from Xur because it had like 30 more Int (I think, or maybe Disc) than the one I had.

I'd still like to clear the 35 once and then get my Hunter through the 34.

I haven't run the Heroic at all yet - still need to do that even though I have 400+ coins. I will probably end up converting a large chunk of them to motes via Xur so I can always use more.

Vendetta - do you remember who was hosting when we did the 35? Because your friend DOA had a good point last night. He said things got easier one time when the host changed. Remember there were a few times when we were slamming Skolas with rockets and his health barely went down. I noticed last night in the 32 (and I was hosting that) that on the end boss there (Cabal dude with changing shields) that I pelted him with a ton of G-horn and then his health went back up afterwards. It definitely could have been a lag/connection issue thing. But if so that just makes it all the more frustrating ;). But I really don't think it was me sucking (other than the one time I hit the side of the bubble). On a couple of those runs I unloaded all 7 G-horn shots, used a synth, and fired all 7 the second time. I don't think you can do much more than that.

Man I want that Auto Rifle from Trials so bad. I am literally drooling over here at work waiting to go home and play more Destiny just for that gun.

My buddy got the version of the gun that has damage type.  Solar.  You can only get the damn thing if you win 9 games in Osiris without a loss (or 1 loss with the boon).   I'm a bit salty he got the 9-0 chest.

 

It just sort of feels like a punch to the gut that there is all this content I am essentially locked out of when I put so much time into this game. At least with the Raids it is just a matter of learning the mechanics and practicing. I'll never be an elite PvP player though.

So both the PvE and PvP were big letdowns for me in the last 24 hours. Not only did I not clear that damn thing, I got in trouble with the family for having stayed up all night to play. I'm seriously in the doghouse now at home ;). I also blew off a day of work to sleep in - that cost me real money. Now I almost Fuck ing wish Destiny had microtransactions so you could buy the gear that people are getting from these activities.

So yeah all in all a pretty depressing day. Bleah...

I did get the Ram helm from an engram but I did about 15 of them and didn't get the other two new helmets (though I did get 3 Rams - go figure). Just more par for the course.

I didn't get to do another run at 35 (I won't be able to relax till I clear it) but I got to listen to other people get all the Trials of Osiris gear that I will never get close to.

I'll still help you out!  Though a bunch of the guys still have to run it on 35.  So if they have room I don't have to, but if they are full I can.  That and I do still have a 35 to do on my warlock...

 

So, io, I know the feeling about being essentially locked out of content.  I am even less of a PvP player than you, but I don't let it bother me so much.  People get will get some fancy armor and weapons, but there's enough variety at this point where I don't feel like my guardians are wearing second-hand clothes.  And the way this game treats me, even if i was playing ToO and IB religiously, there's no guarantee I'd get the items I want most.  In over 700 hours of PoE, there are some exotics that just won't drop (like a certain rocket launcher that shall not be named) and I've only ever gotten one helmet out of VoG.  

Trials isn't as bad as people think, myself included.  Communication is very key in it though.  Camping orbs after kills is crucial as well.  Be ready for lots of Thorn and Last Word though.

 

 

 

Trials of Osiris was good to me drop and reward tier wise.

 

Drops:

-2x Gauntlets

-Boots

 

Bought:

-Chest Piece that you can be 34 light level, the drop pieces you have to ascend sadly :(

-Got a Etheric Light from my rewards, so now my Titan can be 33.  Just need to get another Etheric from 35 with my Warlock and then clear a 34 to have all 3 of my characters to 34.

 

 

The drops are pretty generous and if you have coins to buy the boons, you can last longer.  I'm really digging this game mode and probably will play it every weekend.  I'm having a blast with it so far.  It does encourage teamwork and I really want to play with my two friends who I have been playing MP with since Halo 2.  I think we can easily go 9-0 there :D

I want to say I was but not sure about that.  After Chammer brought Reclaimer in, like I said we cleared with ease.  Though it did seem to me on a majority of the runs that Skolas recovered health for us.  This time it was steadily going down.  I was firing my rockets fast but not to the point where I was spamming.  I was waiting for staggers or if I had to fire fast to stagger.

 

Like I said, I'll make sure you get a clear because that Judgement Chance can give you nice rewards plus the ship and shader are both so sweet! :drool:   That and I'd love to have a shot at a damage type weapon on my Warlock. :D

Nothing - just letting mine max. Though I might buy one of the sparrows just because there's nothing else to get.

Vendetta - Chammer messaged me today and said he went 9-0 and got some sweet stuff. I asked if he and Reclaimer (who is a beast in PvP) could help me with Trials and he said that might be possible. I figure at least that way I have a decent chance at the chest piece if nothing else. Really I don't care about missing out on the 9-0 thing. I don't mind that being an elite, hard-to-get reward that I will never attain. As long as I can get elemental primaries from PoE at some point I won't be too salty about not getting them from Trials. I would like some of the armor though since it looks WAY nicer than the Kell stuff you get from PoE.

I do remember pelting him with rockets and having his health not change/go up. Maybe it is just my internet. It does seem like mine goes up and down with really good connections sometimes and red bar other times. I wish I had checked that at the time to see if that was happening.

But yeah, there was really nothing more I could do. I was emptying 10-14 G-horn rockets using tracking (for the most part) on him every time. Sometimes he was behind the rock and a few might not have hit directly. But with three of us there are plenty of rockets going his way.

I'm busy making up time with the family this evening but if any of your friends are going to start up a 35 send me a message and I'll see it on my phone and see what I can do to hop on ;). It will be much easier after 9pm or so (and it is already 7 now).

So what's the best/easiest way to start getting up to light level 33/34 at this point? Is level 28 Prison of Elders still worth doing if you don't happen to have a Treasure Key with you, or is that the only way to get good rewards from it?

Use an exotic shard on something other than gloves to get it to 42 light. Do the 32 prison of elders and use the armor core to get the gloves from Varicks.

So I started yet another attempt at PoE Level 35 at like 4:30 AM, but this time with one guy as a 33. We had all 34's last time. The 5th wave (big servitor) took forever and the one guy got dropped from the game during it (but was able to rejoin with no problem). When we finally did it I think I used 4 heavy synths during the fight. That thing is a rocket sponge.

Then it was 6am and I was dreading Skolas as this is exactly what happened the other day with Vendetta - but as I said we had a 33 so I was really worried his lower damage would doom our run for sure.

We wiped 4-5 times but then just got super lucky. Both me and the 33 went down with Skolas at about 10%. But we had two lucky things - the 33 got tainted and not the Hunter who was capping points. Also, the points went in order starting with the corner we shot rockets at. Our Hunter (Chammer of course Vendetta) was able to cap them all WHILE Skolas and all the adds were still around. Then he revived us and we finished him off and easily did the second round of caps. That is definitely a non-traditional way of doing it and was pretty damn lucky but I'll take it.

So I got all the cool stuff (Shader, Emblem, Ship) plus Don't Touch Me and a Scout Rifle from the big chest. I used the armor and weapon core for a Judegment chance on my Titan (I did the run on my Warlock but she's already 34). I was hoping for the chest piece (which DevilDog did get Vendetta). I ended up with a Rocket Launcher. It is void and has the bizarre perk of doing moderate bonus damage to Fallen Dregs. WTF!? Like I use rockets on Dregs. What were they thinking with that one? Why not Captains? Oh well, really wanted an armor but I'm thrilled to complete it. With the etheric light I can get my Titan to 34 and try to do it again Sunday (eh, later today) or Monday.

I am very much relieved now.

Oh, we also did Trials of Osiris and got to 4 wins before losing. So I just got crap from that - was so close to the Osiris chest piece. We are going to try that again during the day. You pretty much just run into hardcore players late at night so that was a mistake to even try it then.

I gotta tell ya, the need to grind for the key really takes all of the steam out of the Prison of Elders for me.  I had a lot of fun playing it the other day with Sim, and the new HoW content is really good.  But that grind.  Ugh.  I'm not feeling it like I used to or I thought I would once HoW hit. 

 

Still, if you guys see me online and I'm playing something else, don't hesitate to send an invite if you need another for PoE or a raid or whatever.

Nice one io. Sounds like you finally had some luck on your side on that 35 run to complete it!

I found a team to run through the 34 Poe last night. A 34 and 32 to go along with my 33 and it was surprisingly not that bad. The 34 was really good but with a 32 I figured it would really hinder us. But you can hide under the stairs on the cabal levels and you can cheese on the hive level that has arc burn as well so that helps a bunch. I think we only wiped once at the boss but the 32 did have a Titan bubble so that helped.

As for trials I might just have to go on lfg and ask for some pros to help carry me ton 5 wins. Either that or I will just have to not bother with it. I see all these people who said they went 9-0 multiple times and am like wtf. If you buy the items you basically only have to win 4 of 7 to get the chest. Seems doable with a good team on the last few days where all the top players already got all their loot.

^ Kind of dumb for a 32 to even try 34 since it is easy to run the 32 and get the armor core and make yourself 33 at least.

That's what I'm thinking - plus play during the day. At night it is all pros. My friend Chammer who went 9-0 said as much yesterday. He had no problem with 9-0 Saturday afternoon but at night it was much harder. Of course he was also trying to carry me. But we couldn't even get to 5 wins, and that was with all 3 boons (starting with one win, getting two for one, and forgiving a loss). We creamed two teams but got creamed by the others.

And the stupid game matched us up with the same pro team TWICE IN A ROW. That shit is not supposed to happen - so boo on Bungie for that.

So here's the thing - the keys are really not necessary. Other than the initial guaranteed exotic and the Level 35 chest rewards, I've gotten crap from using I think 8 keys. And those guaranteed exotics turned straight into exotic shards (which I certainly don't need after buying 12+ helmet engrams and breaking most of those down). So, really, other than the Level 35 rewards (100% make sure you have a key if/when you run that) I could have done without the rest. Mostly I got Queen's weapons which aren't all that great.

We'll see come Tuesday if the game gives you one key per character each week. If it does, there is no need to grind. Just save that key for either the 34 or 35 (whichever is the max you think you will do that week).

Yeah, Chubby, I gotta agree with io that the keys are not critical.  I have two left and I'm just storing them in my vault for now.  Aside from getting another Red Death (shard) and another Hard Light (shard) on that first chest, all I have gotten since are Queen's gear.  Right now, I have a Queen's Pulse Rifle, Assault Rifle, Rocket Launcher, and Heavy Machine Gun.  All can be re-forged if I decide I don't like the perks.  I'm saving my keys for future 34/35 runs.

 

My favorite new weapon isn't even from a chest, it is the new Dead Orbit scout rifle that dropped from an engram this afternoon.  It has full-auto mode as the 2nd perk and a lightning fast ROF even without that perk.  I was in need of another good legendary scout rifle so this is perfect.  The best new armor piece I have is the Celestial Nighthawk helmet I decoded from Xur's engram.  It looks cool and I can't wait to level it up and try out that super golden gun on a boss.

Yea, I didn't even think of the level 32 thing, it was late and I had been at a cookout most of the day.  But the 34 was talking a big game saying it didn't even matter as long as there was a titan and we were willing to follow and shoot GH with reckless abandon.  Usually that ends in an hour of frustration, but we got through it pretty quickly.  It might have been as fast as we did the Level 32 on Friday with simo.

Yea, like others have said you have to just forget about the keys for now.  Run the 32 and get your level up to 33.  You get a guaranteed exotic and a queens weapon if you want to use a key, so try your luck if you want to but the queens weapons aren't any better than what you can buy from the vendors.  

 

I'm still kind of mixed on the new content.  I agree that they have totally changed the game with this update but i'm not really sure I like the changes much, lol.  Story is fun, but it is over in an hour or two.  ToO is not for everyone.  PoE is just a horde mode.  Everyone is going to be 34 in a few weeks if they keep rotating the armor piece that House of Judgement sells.  Then what do yo do?  Farm Skolas?  Farm Keys!  Upgrade weapons with EL I guess.  Didn't even have much motivation to run all the old stuff this week for exotic drops.  I'm wondering what they will do week to week to keep things interesting.

Ha ha, you guys were picking my pathetic butt up more often than not.  But we had a good time and I got to 33 and the new gauntlets look sweet!

 

I did get my second to last achievement in the game last night, with Hunter mastery.  Now I just need flawless raider and if anybody wants to seriously run at that, let me know. 

 

 

Oh, and....

The BB glitch was short lived and let you get a game half off when you got a skylander figure or something like that.  I missed it, too.  But that's probably good.  I have a small backlog I'd like to work on anyway.

UGH

 

So I gathered my two buddies the other night for some Trials... and we were kicking ass as usual. 7 wins and zero losses, on our 8th match which was a cake walk for us.... AND THEN THE GAME DISCONNECTED ME. I effed over my buddies and myself because apparently when I jumped back in it counted as a loss even though I had the Forgiveness on. I was SOOOOOOOOOO pissed. I was so mad though and was like... well eff it we are all kickass at PvP let's just get another straight 9 wins.. and that is what we did ; D

 

Ended with the Adept Handcannon with Solar. Kind of weird perks for a handacannon but its base stats are solid and it really hits hard. Also got the emblem and all that jazz as well as more coins and overall with Trials on my Warlock I got 3 more Etheric Light. The chest piece is decent but not really ideal for my set up. That Auto Rifle is pretty damn awesome though. Really wish I would have scored and Adept Auto Rifle or Scout but I will not be greedy : P

I'd just be happy with 5 wins and the chest piece. Would you be up for helping a PvP scrub to get that? I bought a passage and the first two boons with another team I was on Saturday night and after one loss they decided to stop and move on to PoE (that's when I cleared the 35 - so it was worth it). We were supposed to pick it up again today at noon but that has come and gone and I didn't see them on. So I have a card with the 1 guaranteed win and no losses (but my forgiveness thing is gone). I can still buy the 2-for-1 boon though. Like I said I just want to get to 5 (then anything else is a bonus).

I figured playing during the day would be better than all the 3-4AM runs I normally do - less hardcore players on during the day. So maybe it won't be so bad.

I am actually an OK PvP player now. I just finished second on my team on Clash and we barely lost. And I can follow directions ;).

As for PoE, after running the 28, 32 and 34 way more times than I needed to (and getting no Treasure Keys) I am looking forward to getting more regular rewards after reset. I am holding off using my two Etheric lights to level up my Titan to 34 to see what armor piece Veriks has this week. Because if it is anything else besides gloves again I can save one of those etheric lights and start working on maxing out some weapons finally.
